The most recent addition to the dome’s inhabitants is a tribe of yeti from the nearby mountains that call themselves the Kabuki. The Kabuki were a tribe of shamanistic nature-worshipers, prone to tattoos and colorful face-paints, reluctant to make any commitments to the Helix Hegemony and had themselves been in a long feud with a race of what they referred to as Obake. As reclusive as the Kabuki were—they had only been discovered within the past two years, and Dome Foo had been in the area for nearly ten—no dome residents have come into contact with anything close to resembling the yetis’ description of the Obake. Their initiation came reluctantly following a massive battle with the Obake that resulted in the death of the tribe’s leader, Sarjei, and her consort Gammayun. Zakar, Gammayun’s younger brother, made the executive decision to save the tribe’s leaders and initiate the rest into the Helix Hegemony as Node hosts.
Sarjei is a respectful and contemplative leader and has been revived as a firebird, the likes of which has started some rumblings within the tribe about a “prophecy.” Gammayun, her consort, is skilled and powerful but quick to anger. They have become staples in the dome as leaders. The rest of the Kabuki, though, are struggling to find a place. Many of them have introduced the idea of scavenging into the dome. There has been division into two schools of thought, one, that scavenged goods are as good as any and necessary for survival, and those that believe that dome tech is superior to all else. For the time being the Kabuki have been relegated to occupations involved with outside travel. They’ve been with Dome Foo for about 6 months at present.
It is rumored among the Kabuki that several of the shamans of their tribe are magic-users, although this is unheard of in the technological and scientific atmosphere of Dome Foo. Sarjei, herself, is revered as an extremely powerful magic-user, but she has not let on any such ability if that is indeed the case.
